He Took A Bunch Of Old Pennies And Turned Them Into Gorgeous Coasters You’ll Want!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Pennies are hands down the most annoying, useless bits of change ever. Seriously, though, when was the last time you used any change for your grocery store purchases, let alone those copper fiends? For me, pennies used to be things that I just avoided and tried to pawn off on other equally uninterested people. I can't blame those people for not wanting them, though. You can't even use them in vending machines.But when I came across this cool DIY project from Instructables user MrJB, my mind changed completely! You'll understand why when you see the beautiful coasters he made. First he gathered about four dollars' worth of pennies. Instructable...

Nowadays, everyone has a high-powered computer at their fingertips. If you have a smartphone, the computing power of that device alone is more powerful than the computers we used to first send people to space. That's insane! Most smartphones also have high-powered cameras that continue to improve in quality with each release.With a quality camera in our pockets, of course it makes sense that we would take more photos of the world around us. Just one click sends those photos to social media where the world can see our travel photos or selfies. Scientists were interested in what this does to our brains, specifically our memories, and what they found out is really fascinating. Research recently showed that we retain less information when using G...

With reported cases of the Black Death dating back to August, this newest outbreak has infected over 1,100 people and has killed 124. Wha...

Have you ever wondered why the burger you ordered looks so much less appetizing than it did in the photo on the menu?

The art of food photography is fascinating, and it's a field in which most things are not what they appear to be. Earlier this month, reporters at The Guardian spoke with several food photographers about their careers. They got them to spill the beans on how they make the food they photograph look so tasty. 1. Enchiladas iStock When it comes to photographing enchiladas, most food stylists actually use instant mashed potatoes as stuffing.

I can still remember the joy and pure anger I would feel every time I ate Nerds as a kid. The tangy-sweetness was so enjoyable...but that happiness made me want to chew them.
